2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
colour is a very dark brown, decent cream coloured head. smell is of toffee, burnt sugar, roasty bits. taste is minerally, carbonation, dark roasted grain/burnt grain, astringent. palate is a bit harsh, overcarbonated. overall it’s poor for the style but tastes significantly better than a similarly cheap german macro lager.

From a can, bought in a convenience store in China. There’s a couple of good things I can say about this beer: 1) It is easy to drink; and 2) Neither the aroma (or lack of it) nor the taste (or lack of any) make me physically nauseous. Watery look, flavour and palate, skunky whiff.

Can 0,5 l. I don’t understand why rating here is so low. Probably mostly people think it is a cheap beer so then it must be bad one. When you poured this beer you see that brownish head is actually lasting. Brown color. In nose there is mostly hops I think maybe noble hops, german or czech not sure. In flavor dominate chocolate and grains. Balanced. Overall: Yes it is cheap, but it is ok beer. In my top 3 In Croatia best buy beer list..

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can in Gabrovo, Bulgaria - picked up at the local Kaufland. Pours muted, mostly clear brown with a soft, creamy beige head. Pretty decent aroma, just some lightly toasted, brown bread malts, dashes of cocoa. Medium sweet flavor with nicely rounded, bready malts, some toasty toffee, soft earth, mild dried fruits. Light bodied with average, massaging carbonation. Sweet finish with more toasty brown bread, mellow toffee, suggestions of roast and cocoa, very faint bitter earth and dirty leaves, some further dried fruit sweetness. I mean, schwarzbiers don’t really get much better than this. The balance is here, there’s some decent depth of character...I think this is really damn solid stuff.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can, Kaufland. Aroma mild, cardboard, soapy. Light caramel. Clear dark ruby-brown colour. Beige head, rather short duration. Taste is again mild, neutral. Shortage of flavour. Rather sweet, light caramel, almost nonexistent dark malts. Some cardboard. Not so bad, but very weak. Drinkable, but sad.
